  • 1.5 large eggs approximately 2 medium-sized eggs, skillfully cracked and whisked, offering a binding component that holds the ingredients together and adds a delicate richness to the dish.
  • Cooking spray carefully applied to the cooking surface to prevent sticking and ensure even cooking, allowing the ingredients to shine without any unwanted residue.
  • 1/2 cup of chopped zucchini skillfully added to provide a tender and mild taste, contributing to the overall texture and adding a subtle hint of freshness.
  • 1/2 pound of lean ground beef carefully selected with a minimum of 93% lean meat, ensuring a flavorful and protein-rich element that forms the base of the dish.


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F and lightly grease an 8-inch pie dish with cooking spray.
  • In a large skillet, cook the ground beef over medium heat until it is fully cooked through. Then add in the onion, garlic, mushrooms, bell peppers, and zucchini. Cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are softened.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the beef and vegetable mixture into the prepared pie dish. Sprinkle with cheese and spread it evenly across the top.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour this egg mixture over the beef and vegetables in the pie dish.
  • Bake the pie for 25-30 minutes, or until the center is set and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Let cool slightly before serving.


-Make sure to cook the ground beef until it is fully cooked through.
-Feel free to substitute any vegetables of your choice according to what you have on hand.
